    Does the amended text at the end of the quote in post #3 here change anything regarding licensing ?
    With a nod and a wink, Microsoft gives away Windows 10 to anyone who.. - Windows 10 Forums

    Edit... sorry if this has already been covered somewhere, its just there are so many twists and turns to this.

    What are you talking about??? I just c&p'd this from Microsoft site:

    Windows Insiders running the Windows 10 Insider Preview (Home and Pro editions) with their registered MSA connected to their PC will receive the final release build of Windows 10 starting on July 29th. This will come as just another flight. Iíve gotten a lot of questions from Windows Insiders about how this will work if they clean installed from ISO. As long as you are running an Insider Preview build and connected with the MSA you used to register, you will receive the Windows 10 final release build. Once you have successfully installed this build, you will also be able to clean install on that PC from final media if you want to start over fresh. Itís important to note that only people running Genuine Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 can upgrade to Windows 10 as part of the free upgrade offer.*

    Itís important to note that only people running Genuine Windows 7 or Windows 8.1can upgrade to Windows 10 as part of the free upgrade offer.* <--see this star? at the bottom of the page it states:

    *More information about the free upgrade offer can be found at Windows.com.

    "Lost in Translation" I see that a lot. That's also the problem of many Blog sites(except Microsoft's). And even some Americans get it wrong... Thank God my stepmother was a teacher, and brought her work home with her(yeah it nerved to be constantly corrected, but it paid off).

    But the point is that the wording that says that build will then activate has specifically been taken out, if you compare to post 1

    As it stands now, the text could just mean you'll run the final build... until October.

    Edit: to repeat the two quotes I posted together earlier:
    me said: View Post
    The original said:
    Iíve gotten a lot of questions from Windows Insiders about how this will work if they clean installed from ISO. As long as you are running an Insider Preview build and connected with the MSA you used to register, you will receive the Windows 10 final release build and remain activated. Once you have successfully installed this build and activated, you will also be able to clean install on that PC from final media if you want to start over fresh.
    Now it says:

    Not a problem.. I admire the fact that you know more than one language.
